I'd bet that most in-game characters are female because for some reason it seems that most male players of online role-playing games seem to be trapped in the wrong body and deeply deeply wish to have been born a girl and wear women's clothing, mmyes.

That's really how it seems to you? You're saying most of them are transgender?
From what I've learned after playing MMORPG's for over a decade, a lot of men AND women play a character of the opposite sex. Though a lot of men and women play a character of the same sex too.
Just my observation/2 cents.

Heya female here also. I never make a big deal out of it and guys who do make me uncomfortable. People are just people. Always delighted when I find other female players. Very aware that a lot of female players don't use voice as they are sick of being singled out. I use voice though so I end up having some great chats via tells sometimes with people I meet.

Yes, I have grown to loathe voice chat because of this. I do talk in voice to my Officers sometimes still, when there is a need to work something out. I try to get another male (or anyone who will volunteer) to be raid leader, so I can take care of administrative stuff as guild leader and just enjoy the rest of the game in my own little happy immersive place.
There is a real reason why voice chat is not required in my guild. Aside from competitive PvP groups, I haven't viewed voice chat as "necessary." I do understand why a lot competitive guilds require it though. To each their own.

ugh voice chat. don't even get me started on it. It normally follows a typical pattern.
If you don't talk, they assume you're a guy. Bossy raid leader screams, yells, makes a fool of themselves because leadership skills are actually hard to come by.
Once you talk, suddenly bossy raid leader is all nice and cool and forgiving to the new gamer girl. While still being a jerk to everyone else.
Over time boss gets comfortable with girl and jerk emerges again. Its either comfort or realization that girl really wont ever be interested in anything with said boss beyond gaming and at a distance.
Return to being silent again. Everyone assumes you're a guy again.
Yea, i'm happier typing. Let them assume all they want. As long as I don't have to hear it.
